Finally got caught up on this show, after having stopped watching it weekly after episode 6...this may not be a very popular opinion among the masses, but I'm really loving the slow pacing of the series so far. The character work on this show as well as the foreshadowing (or what seems like foreshadowing) and metaphorical content is just on a whole different level. However, I do hope that the deliberate pace of this show doesn't turn off fans of Breaking Bad's faster, more eventful pace and ratings don't sag and it gets prematurely cancelled.
I like the pacing as well. I read interviews with the showrunners and they say how they initially planned on having Jimmy become full-blown Saul Goodman by the end of season one and then discovered that they loved the characters and story they were telling so they sort of hit the brakes on it a little bit. I'm glad they did because all the law firm stuff has been fun to watch.
And they are scratching my "Breaking Bad" itch with the Mike storyline, so I'm satisfied. He's the badass side of things.
This is an example of just pure entertainment. I loved all of this:
So I'm "working" from home the rest of the day today (I work from home every other Wednesday) and coincidentally Friday afternoon (our building is directly next to the Superdome so we have to leave by 1 pm) so it's just a good of a time as any to watch the last seven episodes of season 2.
